It’s here: Pokemon Go arrives in Canada

The Canadian Press | posted Monday, Jul 18th, 2016

Pokemon Go is now finally available in Canada.

The augmented reality game became officially available on Sunday – previously Canadians had to find workarounds to play the game.

It was launched in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Japan earlier this month.

The game sends players into the real world to search for the mythical digital pocket monsters known as Pokemon.

They appear onscreen when users hold up their smartphones in various locations at various times of the day.

The Canadian rollout wasn’t without its glitches.

On Sunday afternoon, the app’s servers overloaded and players had to wait a little longer before they could register an account.
